Saugus

Town OK’s public works evaluation

Continue reading below

The town has hired a consultant to evaluate its Department of Public Works. The Edward J. Collins Center for Public Management at the University of Massachusetts Boston is conducting the assessment. The study, which costs about $11,000, is reviewing the department’s staffing levels, workloads, organizational structure, and operational practices, and comparing them with public works departments in similarly-sized communities, according to Town Manager Scott Crabtree. He said the intent of the study, expected to be completed by July, is to see if there are ways to “improve the department’s effectiveness and efficiency.” The Collins Center is named after the late Edward J. Collins, a former Saugus town manager who later served as Boston’s chief financial officer and treasurer.
